With the COVID pandemic, the puzzling and complex illness of post-acute COVID-19 syndrome (PACS) or long COVID came to light. Together with a multidisciplinary group of physicians and researchers, we launched a program here at Stanford to advance the care and understanding of PACS. Our goal is to better understand the natural history, clinical symptomatology, immunological response, risk factors, and subgroup stratification for PACS. We are also actively assessing management strategies that may be effective for heterogeneous PACS symptoms.
